The Children Desiring God Conference was a wonderful experience, and I look forward to posting links to several sessions when they are available. David Michel ended the final session by reciting Ephesians from memory. What an encouragement to hear all of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians at once!
I also had the opportunity to meet many brothers and sisters from around the world who are dealing with disability in their families or in their churches. I was reminded, frequently, of how good God has been to us at Bethlehem.
Would you pray for our churches and leadership around the world?
- Some churches have great, supportive leadership for disability ministry, like we have experienced at Bethlehem. Praise God for such encouraging examples!
- Some churches have leadership who don’t really understand why this is important. Please pray for them that God would open eyes, and that God would also help the families experiencing disability be patient toward and respectful of the leaders God has appointed.
- Everyone feels inadequate. That’s not a bad thing – it increases our dependency on him as we ask for his help (Philippians 4:5-7).
- Nobody has enough volunteers. Pray for more people to join us, and experience joy with us!
